We all face seasonal changes. The passing years take us on journeys of change―whether we want it or not. In Courage for the Unknown Season, Jan Silvious acts as a wise guide for those who find themselves in new seasons of life, offering perspective and practical insights to encourage the soul and offer hope.
Anyone facing an unexpected change in life or relationship will be drawn to this book as a guide for walking through the shifting seasons. They can make it through this time with courage, strength, and yes, even joy!
“Life is too long to keep doing the things we need to stop and too short to miss the things we want to begin.”
Scripture references and study questions make this a useful small-group resource.
We live in a culture that seems
to be in denial about getting older. As boomers inch toward retirement years,
we tend to think of seniors as “them” and not “us.” In Courage for the Unknown Season, Jan
Silvious, in her trusted voice, puts getting older into beautiful perspective.
Whatever season you’re in, Jan’s words of wisdom will help you embrace every
moment as a gift from God. (Babbie Mason, AWARD-winning SINGER/songwriter,
speaker, and author)
Jan’s refreshing tell-the-truth style―as a speaker, writer, and friend―instantly drew me to her. Jan goes straight where the pancake hits the griddle. She’s not afraid of the heat in life, whether it shows up as aging, grief, or a scorching heartbreak. Her well-researched material will feed your soul and help equip you for the season you’re in. It has for me. This is a knapsack book to accompany us on the journey. Thanks, Jan. (Patsy Clairmont, Speaker and author of You Are More Than You Know)
Jan Silvious has a steady perspective on life! She is open and real and can relate. This new book gives us a big dose of practical wisdom for trusting God today and in the future―and even for laughing at the future. Jan encourages us to squeeze out life’s joys to make a difference for ourselves and others we love. (Debbie Petersen, Missionary with Campus Crusade for Christ for 34 years)

People Often Ask These Questions:
- How do I fulfil my destiny? Our destiny is bound up in our response to the Gospel. “Are you saved or lost?” That is the question above all questions. The declaration of the Gospel is “Jesus saves.” He saves from wrath, judgment, hell, bondage, the devil, and darkness. He saves us from dying in our sins. …People insure their houses and yet do not insure their eternal future. Yet we know that salvation offers so much more. Who else offers such insurance but Jesus?
- Why does God allow suffering? You could just as well ask the National Secretary of Transportation why he allows accidents on the highways. No doubt he would take exception to your accusation and point to the rules of the road. “Every time a law is broken, an accident and suffering might occur,” he would reply. People suffer chiefly for one reason—they are ignoring God’s rulebook, the Bible, and everything goes wrong. Our Creator knows exactly how He has made us and what will harm us. Consequently, out of a caring, protective heart, He says, “You shall not … ” The “you shall nots” are not edicts designed to spoil our fun, but rather they are the manufacturer’s handling instructions. God wisely knows that our psyche is unable to handle sin. Actually, it is crushed and tormented by misdeeds. It is always wise to read the instruction manual before using a new appliance. People worry about breaking a new DVD player or a new computer, but strangely, they have no worries about destroying their own spirits and souls with the poison of sin.
